I worked at Darden

Pros

A great place to work to make fast cash. Loved being able to go in broke and come home with $100-$150 a night. I loved the fact that server's didn't do sidework.

Cons

Working long and late hours, put a lot of strain on my back, and came home smelling like the kitchen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Split shits are the worst thing ever invented; you spend your entire day at work. Please offer more incentives besides Olive Garden gift cards.

    Pros

    Plenty of hours, pay was actually really good for the work I did, fun people to work with, management seemed very competant

    Cons

    obviously being a high school and college job, alot of drama which could be entertaining at times but despite peoples best efforts to stay distanced from it, it always manages to find you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys actually were some of the better managers I ever had. Friendly, understanding but also can make tough decisions when they need to be made.
